Over the past 17 years, Robert has established and maintained a busy practice, predominantly in the general commercial/corporations/directors/insolvency area in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the Federal Court of Australia. However, he has also appeared in a diverse range of matters in many other Courts, including the High Court of Australia and the Courts of Appeal in NSW and the ACT amongst others.
He has been briefed by firms of all sizes, from the large (Clayton Utz, Freehills, Mallesons), medium (Piper Alderman, Atanaskovic Hartnell, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, Henry Davis York, Dentons Australia, Lander & Rogers, Moray & Agnew) and smaller (Eakin McCaffery Cox, ERA Legal, O’Neill Partners, Verekers, Access Business Lawyers) to sole practitioners (Lancaster Law, Licardy & Company). He has also been briefed on a direct access basis by companies, such as Meriton Apartments, Deloittes and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and several liquidators.
He has been involved in several very large and complex matters, including both the General and Special Purpose liquidations of One.Tel and a 106 day hearing of a misleading conduct claim in the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
